    Hi everyone, just out of interest nothing more, on a scale of say 1-10 how favourably would a BB bank look upon an above average Cambridge mathmo?

    Think of it as ticking boxes, decent degree from a decent uni can tick 2 boxes max (if not 1).. pretty useless if you cant tick another 20 boxes (Networking, work experience, industry knowledge, banter, drive, etc)

    "Banter", love it. But for "Networking", specifically how does that help secure a summer analyst position given that there seems to be a set application process? How would one in ways, other than through work experience/Spring weeks, improve their industry knowledge?

    For example, if you've spoken to an analyst from their bank and you know what training they offer, its something you could mention in your cover letter and it shows that you care about progressing within their bank and made the effort to find out! You could get non technical industry knowledge from reading Bloomberg FT WSJ properly overtime, there are also a lot of technical stuff that you could at least get a basic understanding of from internet(Investopedia) and networking!

    Is reusing some of the content used in spring week cover letters dangerous for summer internship applications?

    I don't see any problem tbh. You can't change all of your experiences and motivations in one year.

    I've seen:
    GS/MS/Citi/Nomura/JPM/Barc

    And of course all the off cycle schemes at various banks.

    Strange. I have an acquaintance on LinkedIn who landed an internship at HSBC in his final year (right now actually)...
